About JBL Explorer 20 Single Sling Spear Gun (4D20)

If you're looking for a speargun that's big on performance while still leaving a little green in your wallet, the Explorer is perfect. Same quality as the Magnum Series: hardened stainless trigger and shaft, cast aluminum, two piece handle, but combined with a 1" aerospace alloy barrel for quick target acquisition and fatal results. Same parallel power source and low profile design make the Explorer perfect for cagey fish when the shot window is a split second

The JBL Explorer 20 Single Sling Spear Gun (4D20) is popular because customers like the following qualities of the JBL Explorer 20 Single Sling Spear Gun (4D20): Accurate, Durable, Lightweight, Low Recoil.

      Comments about JBL Explorer 20 Single Sling Spear Gun (4D20):

      Bought this for a friend who was anxious to expand the food he caught from the sea with selective hunting. It is a fairly small, lightweight gun. Inexpensive, and perfect for a beginner. It has a short range, and does not have the power to kill large game, but for fish in the 20 lbs and under range, it is a good gun. I would worry a bit about the long term durability, but I figure it is a gun that most people upgrade from in time.

        Comments about JBL Explorer 20 Single Sling Spear Gun (4D20):

        I am a begining spearfisher and thought I would start off with a cheap gun. bad choice. after 1 dive I got a new gun. the range on this gun is about 3 feet and it has no power. unless you want to be disapointed, go with a different gun!!!

        Comments about JBL Explorer 20 Single Sling Spear Gun (4D20):

        I bought this speargun as my first and I'm a little disappointed. The range is definitely not 12' (as published). It doesn't even shoot 12' with the second band I added. Disappointing. With that said, spearfishing is fun and this gun let's me practice my newfound hobby. Frankly, I'm using it until my new 7' JBL travel polespear shows up. I'm going to let friends use this gun from now on.

        Comments about JBL Explorer 20 Single Sling Spear Gun (4D20):

        The factory tip that comes with this gun only has one folding barb and no retainer for the wing. If you are serious about fishing go ahead and buy a good tip for this gun. Otherwise it is accurate and good for the price and excellent for small fish such as bass, bream and crappie.

        Comments about JBL Explorer 20 Single Sling Spear Gun (4D20):

        This is a nice compact speargun that works reliably and has provided me with some nice Tautog in New England. For any larger fish or shots at a range exceeding about 5-6 ft it just doesn't have the punch, however. It probably makes sense to get something bigger unless you're only going for rather small prey.
